Dwight Theall – “Veiled Spaces”

Photographer Dwight Theall
Website http://www.theallimagery.com
Title Veiled Spaces
Category May 2014 Gold BW First Place
Location Washington State
Reason For Making the Image I wanted to reduce this waterfall to its essential element, literally “falling water.” By removing all contextual references to surrounding elements —- sky, clouds, trees, where the water comes from and where its going, and even the rocks on which the water splashes and is redirected —- the only physical element left is the water itself.  It moves at different speeds and in different directions, veiling physical and spiritual spaces that we know are there but cannot see.  Rendering the scene in black and white further clarified the vision.
Camera Fuji S6000fd

Title Hardwood Cove
Category May 2014 BW Gold Third Place
Location Hardwood Cove, Great Smoky Mountains NP, TN
Reason For Making the Image During one of our early spring photo hikes, we looked all day to find and photographblooming Trilliums covered forest floor, but the blooming was delayed. We were sad about it, however, when I looked at the slopes of Hardwood Cove, I was impressed with the trees and the light behind them. Placing a Soft focus filter to my lens, I was able to express my feelings and the mystery of the Hardwood Cove.
